It won't last long, the BBC have dropped the Met Office as their weather provider. Apparently the contract has gone to either a Dutch or New Zealand company, go figure 😏

AI DON'T BELIEVE IT!!

You'll be getting your weather straight from Johnny Foreigner? They'll never manage precisely the right sort of drizzly p1sh! Even the wind will have a slight hint of garlic on it...

In that case with the BBC (US?)...still picking up the Tab we can expect a whole Spectrum of Scents-Fragrance and Flavours from all over ....just to keep it "Ballanced and impartial"
Really don't need the MET office...or "Johnny Foreigner" to tell which way the wind is blowing over here!

Conveniently, we have four separate 150ft windex (wind turbines) visible from the kitchen. Ideal for beach selection.

Another going up today, a few fields away I've noticed.
